Ministers approve hundreds of W. Bank housing units

The ministerial team for settlements approved hundreds of new apartments in the settlements of Ma'ale Adumim, Ariel, Kirya Sefer and in Gush Etzion in a special meeting on Saturday.
The move comes in the wake of a terrorist attack on Friday in which five members of one family were stabbed to death in the West Bank settlement of Itamar.
Among the participants in the specially called meeting were Prime Minister Binyamin Netnayahu, Vice Premier Moshe Ya’alon, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Homeland Security Minister Matan Vilna'i. Sources in the Prime Minister's Office told Israel Radio that the plan deals with measured building inside existing settlement blocs.
